This week we find more shelf roads and remote camps. We're MORE than happy to be back in the desert and it feels like home!

This week we drive over a high pass in Northern Peru that the local kids told us was washed out. We're never sure whether they are over or understating it so we went for it and ended up seeing the best views of the trip so far.

This week we make our way into the biggest city we've seen in months, Lima. It's a little like Mad Max on the outskirts which was fun to drive through.

Last month we did a live interview with Jailbreak Overland while we were in Bolivia. He was kind enough to let us re-upload the video to our page.

Thanks for sharing your adventures!

I just discovered that Eric from Campteq is back in business with an upgraded version uf the pop top. How‘s your top working out for you so far? Any issues or complains?

Cheers, Neil

Hey Neil,
The upper and lower aluminum are original, but we had to redo the tent material and mosquito netting. We also replaced the hinge since the original broke on the previous owner in Baja and he put on gate hinges that we replaced with a beefy piano hinge that is bolted and sikaflexed into place instead of the Tig welded original that didn't hold up to the flexing. We replaced the gas struts with stronger ones.
The whole top is sikaflexed on instead of bolts and that's held up perfectly. No issues.
The back tends to leak in the rain so we added a back flap for that and the sides leak so the new design with a little "skirt" of material mostly takes care of that I bet.
So, all of that being said, I think the new ones take care of most of the issues. :rofl:
